Rusack Vineyards handcrafts wines that have become known around the world for their striking elegance, robust yet silky fruit, and seductive finish--reminiscent of the rolling hills of Ballard Canyon at dusk. Established in 1995 by the husband and wife team of Geoff Rusack and Alison Wrigley Rusack, the forty-eight acre Ballard Canyon estate is planted with seventeen acres of grapes. Syrah one of the varietals that initially drew the world's attention to Ballard Canyon, make up approximately half of the estate vines. Interspersed with these are smaller blocks of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon & Petite Sirah. Additionally, several rows of Merlot and Petit Verdot are grown for blending into Rusack Vineyards' renowned "Anacapa," a Bordeaux-style red blend.
